victory over the Chicago Cubs yes-
terday while Pittsburgh and Los
Angeles, in a virtual tie for second
place, were walloped but good in
a major league schedule curtailed
by rain and cold.
St. Louis trimmed the Pirates
12-2, with Ken Boyer driving in
six runs as Bob Friend lost his
fifth in a row as a starting pitcher.
And Milwaukee hammered Los An-
geles 10-2 behind Warren Spahn,
who won No. 293 with his second
success of the year over the usually
frustrating Dodgers.
The Giants made it six out of
six over the Cubs with a pair of
unearned runs in the 13th. Harvey
Kuenn, who drove in an eighth-
inning run for a 2-2 tie, singled in
the lead run for the Giants, who
then scored the clincher on a wild
throw by outfielder Billy Williams.
Sam Jones (4-3) was the winner
in relief. Don Elston (5-4) was the
Boyer, after going 15 games
without an RBI, blasted a pair of
homers for the Cards, deciding it
with a three-run shot off Friend

with six errors. Southpaw Curt-
Simmons (2-3) . of the Cards
pitched his first, complete game
while allowing 10 hits.
Spahn (5-3) allowed seven hits,.
but three were bunt singles. The
Braves backed him with four dou-
bleplays against the Dodgers-the
only club with a lifetime edge
(31-16) over the superb southpaw.

Hard hurling Jim Biel, stocky
moundsman for Phi Alpha Kappa
pitched a one hitter to lead his
team to an 11-0 win over Delta
Sigma Delta for the professional
fraternity "A" championship.
Biel also blasted a home ,run

runs with a' steady barrage of
singles throughout the contest.

SAM's first run in the first as he

PSK came back in the second
inning with a single by Al Pol-
lett and a double by Dale Geiger,
advancing him to third. Pollett
then scored on a ground out with
Geiger moving to third. He then
scored on an error to put his team
in front temporarily 2-1.
Clutch-hitting Vollen evened
things in the last of the second as
he singled and scored from first
on an error. His identical per-
formance in the sixth broke the
tie and put SAM into the "A"
fraternity finals.
